Cairo's Best 5 Restaurants for Mbakbaka

This dish is what you truly call a mmmbop!

If you don't know what an mbakbaka is, then today is when your actual life begins. Mbakbaka happens to be Libya's most iconic dish. It is the dish that you make when you don’t have time but want something hearty and delicious. It is the dish you make when you have guests that show up at your door unannounced but want to make them a dish that makes them feel welcomed. It is the dish you make when you run out of fresh produce, but don’t want to make a trip to the grocery. Don't worry, however, we're not going to ask you to make you anything. On the contrary, we're going to tell you the best places where you can devour this one-pot pasta wonder of a dish.
